“Perfect Lunch”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Not my first time but i thought this was better than ever. Had the Halibut Tiradito to start - thinly sliced halibut bathed in citrus sauce with a very light spice. Amazing. Then the Rock Shrimp Creamy/Spicy - always a favorite. The place is pretty low key given this was Nobu's first restaurant. The food is always fresh and creative and the people are ultra-friendly.

“Some of the best quality sushi - in the world ”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

I love sushi, in fact anything Japanese. I love the different ways of cutting fish, serving it as sashimi or nigiri or maki or .....
They certainly have a huge variety of very fresh produce, cut to order and presented beautifully. Also a variety of sake to choose from. Service was quick and attentive. Considering how all the tables are packed together they didn't mix up any orders. A good evening out.

“Our best meal in L.A. - no doubt about it”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

On a recent 4 day trip to L.A., we had 4 great dinners at restaurants by Wolfgang Puck, Mario Batali, Thomas Keller, and Nobu Matsuhisa. Our dinner at Matsuhisa was clearly the best of the four.

At Matsuhisa, the food is clearly the star, but the staff were extremely helpful. While my daughter loves sushi, I do not. My daughter had the best sushi of her life, while I had great oysters, king crab, the best California roll possible, and some wonderful tempura. Most of my selections were suggest by the staff - and they were superb. The staff gave us great suggestions, and also told us to stay away from certain things. Their suggestions were not price motivated, and they were dead accurate. Fantastic Sapporo on draft, too.

Fun place. We were there on a Tuesday night, and the place was packed. Everyone was in a good mood. A couple of guys from Def Leppard were in the house, and we met some some really nice & outgoing locals. At Matsuhisa, it seems that everyone is in a good mood. And quite honestly, the prices were not ridiculous. If you're looking for budget sushi, there are many places to go. If you're looking for the best, Matsuhisa is the place.

“Excellent Tasting Menus”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

I've eaten here only twice, both times with Japanese guests, and the meals were superb. We ordered the tasting menus and the dishes were extremely creative, beautiful to look at, fresh and tasty. Let them prepare the dishes they think are good and you won't be disappointed.

If you have never been to Matsuhisha than this means that you havent eaten The best Sushi:) I am very serious, I have been to many Sushi serving restaurants all over the world, but this one is something different. I definatly stop by this place when I am in town. You are very likly to run in to the Master Nobu himself, this is his first Restaurant and he is often there. This is not a fancy NobuRestaurant, it is down at heels, So Dont try to put on very fancy clothes. If you not more than 4, try to go early to grap a sit at the Sushi Bar which you watch the Sushi Masters like a Circque de Soleil show. Definatly a Must in LA. Well Sushi is not a cheap meal if you are flying the fishes from Japan, but if you have the pops, MUST TRY.
